Hien Le’s Berlin Fashion Week, Part One

by James Glazebrook

During Berlin Fashion Week we followed local designer Hien Le as he prepared for his catwalk show and the final of the Start Your Own Fashion Business competition. Our three-part story for NPR starts in Hien’s Kreuzberg studio, where he explains how he incorporates influences from his birthplace of Laos into the “really clean, simple and minimalistic” aesthetic that already caught the attention of industry insiders at last year’s Fashion Week. Read part one of our article over on NPR’s Berlin Stories, and scroll down to see more behind-the-scenes photos. Part two coming soon!
